As we work our way towards Pro Basketball's version of the Final Four, injuries have and continue to play a huge role. Is there any doubt that Chicago would have taken care of business against Philadelphia with a healthy Derrick Rose and Joakim Noah?
As we play out the final days of the 2011-'12 NBA season, we take a look at each franchise. Who emerged, what went wrong, what lies ahead. A look at post season chances, long term potential and upgrades possible in this summer's NBA draft. We continue in the Central Division of the Eastern Conference with the Indiana Pacers.
Are you a big man short from landing in the money in your fantasy league? If you have a shot at the money, it's decision making time. Some don't want to spend any more money on free agents/waivers and ride out what they have. The other option is to spend money to try and gain every point you can down the stretch. While it's hard to find well rounded talent, you can certainly find big men that bring rebounds, blocks, scoring, just not all in one player. We have identified the best power forwards that are available in 50% or more of Flea Flicker leagues.
Entering the 2011-12 season, more money was on the Chicago Bulls than any other NBA team on winning their division. Who has the talent to run with the Windy City? Indiana made a bit of a move last season, but that's it, and honestly, we're talking the Pacers. Of the big three sports, the NBA is the one that is impacted the most by one player. (We acknowledge Peyton Manning is a special case). In the case of the Bulls, a 10-2 start is in jeopardy if the Derek Rose injury is lingering in nature. Lets take a look, continuing with the Eastern Conference, specifically the Central Division. Bargain players for each team are shown with percentage availble in Flea Flicker leagues.
